Preheat oven to moderate (375° F). Line jelly-roll pan with
Saute onion in oil in large skillet over medium heat 3 minutes. Add
red pepper, garlic, basil, and thyme, saute 5 minutes.
Combine beef, pork, oats, egg, whites, mozzarella, Parmesan, parsley,
optional salt, and pepper in large bowl. Add vegetable mixture.
Shape into large oval on prepared pan.
Bake in moderate oven (375°F) for 30 minutes. Brush loaf with
catsup. Bake 25 minutes or until cooked through. Let stand 10 minute
Judi's Notes: I would bake this meat loaf in a loaf pan due to
possible grease escaping from the jelly roll pan. I would also spoon
off some of the fat from the loaf after 30 minutes.
